One of the leading exponents of some of the most
significant currents in contemporary art in
the latter half of the twentieth century, Arnulf Rainer is returning to
Gallerja in Via della Lupa in Rome. This comes after his “Je est
un autre” exhibition, in which some of his historic works based
on body poses were shown, revealing how they had paved the way for Body
Art. This time the great Austrian artist is in Rome with a series of works
that adopt authentic engravings by Giovan Battista Piranesi as their supports.
Using the method he has employed in other circumstances – in his
Uberzeichnungen – he works on them with pastels, coloured pencils,
and oils, superimposing designs and colours on the existing imagery of
the ancient prints..
